An Agenda of Equity: Communities Lay Foundation for Trauma-Informed Change

Anndee Hochman ·
Administrators in the Bellingham, Washington school district realized that a free public education actually came at a price. School supply lists could easily run up a $250 tab at office supply stores; families were tapped for field trip fees, sports uniforms and musical instruments. And those costs inevitably pinched hardest in the least affluent neighborhoods. In the 11,000-student district, where one-acre wooded lots sit next door to apartment complexes housing migrant workers,...

Artists in the ACE and Resilience Movement: Creative Avenues to Change

Anndee Hochman ·
They began with a song and ended with a poem. In-between, there were photographs and giant graphic renderings, movement exercises and a “human pulse” formed when 90 people stood in a circle and squeezed each other’s hands. At a June summit in Whatcom County, Washington, titled “Our Resilient Community: A Community Conversation on Resilience and Equity,” the arts played a starring role. Kristi Slette, executive director of the Whatcom Family and Community Network, one of two Washington sites...

Mental Health Awareness: When Suffering Is Not an Illness

Lori Chelius ·
When I was an adolescent and young adult, I struggled with depression. As I reflect back on that time, so much of what I was experiencing was deeply tied to coming to terms with my sexuality. Growing up in the 1980’s in a relatively conservative town, I was closeted (even to myself) until I was a young adult. The pain and fear of being different, of not belonging, of being judged or rejected for who I was more than my adolescent brain could wrap its conscious head around.

Pathway for Trauma is Pathway for Resilience: Fresno Network's Message Inspires Hope

Anndee Hochman ·
In Fresno, volunteers from local churches were already working with the schools, mentoring kids and running weekend recreation programs. Community-based non-profits were in conversation with educators; pastors were talking to social-service providers. The problems were clear: nearly 30% of Fresno’s residents living in poverty (the rate tops 40% for Black residents), with a 20-year gap in life expectancy between the richest and poorest parts of this sharply segregated city.
